Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri was a major reason for this. 38-year-old Sunil Chhetri has been playing for the Indian team for more than ten years. He is currently fourth in the list of highest goalscorers. Cristiano Ronaldo is at the first place, Lionel Messi is at the second place and Ali Tei is at the third place.
In this case, Sunil Chhetri has talked about winning the South Asian Championship Cup for the year 2023 and the upcoming Asian Cup.
“The support from the fans was great from the first day of the match. The way they inspired us was magical. Both Kuwait and Lebanon are quality teams. It was nice to beat those teams and win the trophy. At the same time there has been a positive change in the attitude and awareness of football fans.
